I think he meant that a 50 year old middle-manager in Virginia is unlikely to rip his family out of school, out of the state, the wife away from her job just so he can move everyone 10 states away for a job that pays 50% less. Additionally, just because there are "7,100,000" jobs available doesn't mean a 50 year old middle-manager is qualified for most of them. Do you really think that 50 year old is going into mining or logging? Education? Slide into a middle-manager business job?

From your own link:
Bureau of Labor Reports More Jobs Than Workers in Most Industries

So I put you down as being in favor of trillion dollar deficits.

Education healthcare up 187%, they are administrators so they would be fit for the Professional and Business openings which are up 213%, many are IT workers so information would be another option up 155%

Trump offered compromise in The wall, DACA, Tax cuts... ... ..... (his comporomise of tax cuts was accepted by congress)
Raise spending and cut taxes? Even a Texas housewife living in a trailer home knows that doesn't add up. No wonder we have a deficit.

Trump says a lot of things, many in conflict with each other. Are you saying he's backpedaled from his claim to shutdown the government over his wall?

Yes, you see the Tax cuts were only revenue NEGATIVE if GDP was 1.9% or less.... They became revenue POSITIVE at 2% GDP, and became INCREASINGLY revenue positive for every %point the GDP was above 2.%

So... lets look Trump cut taxes, and we have seen RECORD revenue growth. GDP was growing at <2% prior to the tax cuts..

20% of something is > 25% of nothing.

So that doubing of GDP doubled the dollars that have are taxed...

Which is greater 25% of 50
or 20% of 100

Alt-Right math: Spend more, tax less, increase the deficit for profit.

Alt-Right math: Spend more, tax less, increase the deficit for profit.

Not alt right math.

we were running 1.6% GDP Growth under the old tax code and it was declining each year.

That is why it had to reach 2% gdp growth to be revenue positive and 1.9% to be revenue neutral.

once that 1.6% GDP growth reached 2% Trump was making money for the Government.

We would not have had the other 1.7% Growth without the tax cuts.

So that was money that would never have been taxed under the previous code. Money is taxed when it changes hands.. twice as much money is changing hands because the lowered risk of loss due to the tax cuts.

So 2018 we had record revenue collection, because of the tax cuts. more money changed hands.. thus more revenue collected,,

as I daid 20% of something is more than 25% of nothing.
